Our Environmental Profile

ISO 14001 Certification

2SB Managements Systems is successfully certified to the ISO 14001:2015 management system standard with certification body DNV Global.

As a consultancy advising clients on how to implement successful environmental management systems, we felt it was important to ‘practice what we preach’ by gaining the certification ourselves.

Despite our activities having a relatively low environmental impact, ISO 14001 has helped us focus on where we can still contribute positively to improving the environment and our own performance.

In-keeping with the requirements of the standard, 2SB have identified our most significant environmental aspect to be commuting.  

Offsetting our Commuting Emissions

To monitor and reduce the impact of our CO2e emissions from commuting, we have develop a tool for our consultants to record all their business journeys via each mode of transport. 

In 2019 our consultants travelled a total of 40,964 miles, 69% by car, 30% by train  and 1% by bike.

This equates to 18.8tCO2e.

We have used Carbon Footprint  to offset this carbon through paying for the planting of 19 trees in the UK.  

Our consultants are encouraged wherever possible & practicable to car share and use public transport and one of our consultants doesn’t even own a car.

Social Sustainability

2SB recognise that sustainability is three dimensional. Economic, Environmental and Social sustainability cannot be achieved individually but must be equally balanced if we are to hope for the same quality of life into the future.

In 2019 we supported the Maidstone Mela which aims to encourage and support multi-culturalism locally through hosting a celebration of music, visual arts, food and dance.
